6. Leftover Baked Spaghetti
Did you just make spaghetti to feed an army for your family of 4? Try jazzing it up the next day into a spaghetti bake! By adding in a few ingredients to the mix to help keep the spaghetti mixture together, you have what almost looks like lasagna. This is like getting 2 meals out of just one! I think this keeps things a little more exciting, especially if you have picky eaters.
7. Leftover Pizza Kabobs
I think part of the reason pizza is so popular is because it tastes great leftover, but I love the idea of incorporating it into a school lunch. It’s so hard to keep school lunches exciting as we get further and further into the year– sandwiches get boring! Use leftover pizza to make kabobs by adding in a few of their other favorite fresh ingredients (tomatoes, olives, basil leaves, ham, cheese, pineapple, etc.).
8. Leftover Corn Fritters
I don’t think I’ve ever had a grilled corn fritter in my entire life, and I’m starting to feel like I’ve been missing out on something amazing. The next time you have leftover corn, don’t let it go to waste! Use it to make these easy and delicious corn fritters! Corn just got taken to a whole new level.
9. Spaghetti Sandwiches
Leftover spaghetti and meatballs? Great! Turn that pasta into a heavenly spaghetti sandwich! There’s nothing wrong with doubling up the carbs, not when it tastes this good. I say the more added cheese, the better. Maybe even throw in a few basil leaves for added flavor.
10. Hotdog Bun Sandwich Melt
Turn those leftover hotdog buns into a yummy Italian Melt! For whatever reason, I think we have it programed in our brains that hotdog buns can only be used for hotdogs, but come on! Why not make a skinny sandwich out of it?
11. Leftover Coffee Ice Cubes
Use what’s left in your morning pot of coffee to make coffee cubes! They make the perfect iced coffee and have many other uses. Drop a cube or two in your morning coffee to cool it down enough to drink, use them in baking recipes in place of water for a richer flavor, use them in place of regular ice cubes when drinking creamed liquors (Bailey’s, etc.), or use them to make a homemade frappuccino, smoothie or milkshake.
